New bait shop opens near Wills Creek

| May 19, 2020

All of you fishermen/fisherwomen out there may be interested to know there is a new bait store only five minutes from Wills Creek. As most people know, the Wills Creek Dam area offers great fishing and Tucks Bait & Tackle has everything you need.

They have live bait, fat head minnows, crawlers, and wax worms, chicken liver, spinners, rubber worms, lures and buzz baits, rods and reels and a lot more. Also, Tucks Bait & Tackle Logo T-shirts in three colors sizes large to 4XL are just in and they’re giving away free car window decals. They also sell soft drinks, candy bars and snack items, as well.

Proprietors Ken and Amy Jennings named the store after their 2-year-old son Tucker.

“We wanted to establish the family business for him,” Amy said. “So that he can grow up helping in the business. It is something we have always wanted to do. We talked about it for about 15 years. For the last year and a half, we researched it and decided to go for it. We both like to fish. Fishing is something I’ve done for years. I was raised doing it.”

“We are about 5 minutes from Wills Creek,” she said. “It’s a big fishing spot around here. We saw a need for it. We are going to see what this summer brings but we plan to expand. It’s a small business right now, but you’ve got to start somewhere.”

Tucks Bait &Tackle is located at 50051 TR 146 (just off of 83) in Coshocton. Call 740-294-0126 or check out

“Our hours are from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. We have some great deals on some great reels and it’s not too early to think about Father’s Day. Hope to see you all. Stop in before your next fishing trip. We look forward to providing you with what you need for your fishing fun,” Ken said.
